Usage:
Swimwear fabric is primarily used in sports such as swimming, dance, and gymnastics.

 

The fabric:
Our myfabrics.co.uk swimwear fabrics consist of polyamide and Lycra (a brand name for spandex), and both are synthetically produced fabrics. While polyamide can easily be dyed during production, spandex is very resilient.

 

Care instructions:
Our myfabrics.co.uk swimwear fabrics can be machine-washed at 40° C with a gentle setting. However, make sure you use mild detergent, since the colours may fade and the elasticity may be reduced otherwise.

 

Production instructions:
A special needle with a rounded tip should be used for elastic fabrics, since normal needle points can tear the knit. The needle size (70 to 90) should be selected according to the fabric.
Seams also need to remain stretchy. Use your machine’s special utility and overlock stitches. A straight stitch with the lest possible needle thread tension (e.g. 2 to 3) or a very slight zigzag stitch with a length of 1.5 to 2 mm may be used on normal machines.
Very elastic fabrics and seams that are subjected to a high level of stress should be sewn using a zigzag stitch at a length of 1 to 1.5 mm and a width of 1.5 to 2 mm.
